"Noooo, people come up and start snapping away...

...with those damn mobile-phone cameras. They’re a nuisance. That’s not photography. There is no connection with the subject, no warmth."

"When I look at photos I see no eros or passion. It doesn’t matter if it is a picture of a city landscape, or a woman or Mt. Fuji. They are all surface, no penetration. The only photos I like to look at are my own, though it’s not modest to say so."
"I’m trying to catch the soul of the person I’m shooting. The soul is everything. That’s why all women are beautiful to me, no matter what they look like or how their bodies have aged."

DO IT YOURSELF: A BAMBOO PICTURE FRAME

Last sunday was very rainy and boring.
But I had an idea, let's make a picture frame!
OK, let's go!

What you need:

materials:
_ bamboo
_ card-board

tools:
_ saw
_ machete
_ pencil
_ water level
_ sandpaper
_ wood glue
_ brush
_ wood preservative or color varnish


It's very easy! I need more or less one hour and I'm not Tim Taylor:)









Of course the works with the saw and the machete are the most difficult and dangerous works at this! BE CAREFUL!









At the end you've got a wonderful self-made picture frame!

The card-board is 30x24cm large and with the bamboo panels on it, is place for a 17,5x12cm picture.
I put my picture "the moloch lives" into the frame, the contrast between the home-made natural frame and the picture of an industrial city is great:

...are dentists and photographers- dentists because they want to be doctors, and photographers because they want to be painters."
